How we met
By the bride, Nkem
I met Raymond on a random day in November 2011 while on my way back from a friend’s wedding. This was almost 10 years ago. It was only meant to be one or two dates before I relocated from Benin City.
I can’t believe that the same guy who toasted me randomly on an Owambe Saturday is the man I’m going to be “Owambe-ing” with for the rest of my life. lol.
A few days after my birthday in May, my friend invited me to come with her to another friend’s dinner party. So I got all dolled up and ready to slay, completely clueless that I was going to my own proposal party.
I was so surprised to see Raymond there and the next thing I know he goes down on one knee and asked me to marry him.
Everything happened so fast but all I could see was my beautiful future staring me in the face. I am grateful for that fateful Saturday because it was the day I met my best friend and the love of my life.
